Thallium 201 was given to 71 patients with various pulmonary diseases. Positive uptake was noted in primary malignant neoplasms and also in 6 cases of Hodgkin's lymphoma.

A disadvantage is the high myocardial accumulation of this radionuclide which impairs proper visualization of paracardiac neoplasms.
